Cool Apocalypse Dedicated to Harold Ramis and Alain Resnais


Continuing a tradition of dedicating each of his films to two artists who have inspired him, writer/director Michael Smith has revealed that Cool Apocalypse will be dedicated to the memory of filmmakers Harold Ramis and Alain Resnais. (This follows The Minx (2007), which was dedicated to Louis Feuillade and Chor Yuen, At Last, Okemah! (2009), which was dedicated to Miguel Cervantes and Woody Guthrie, and The Catastrophe (2011), which was dedicated to Jafar Panahi and Mohammad Rasoulof.) After Ramis and Resnais passed away within a week of each other earlier this year, Smith wrote an appreciation of each man’s work — and some of the not-so-obvious affinities between them — for his White City Cinema blog.
